As experienced Tucson rollover car crash lawyers, we were disturbed and completely shocked by the details and aftermath of a collision that took place on Saturday, July 21, 2012, according to reports from Tucson News Now. The accident happened on Bear Canyon Road late Saturday night when the driver lost control of the vehicle he was driving and rolled it over at the side of the road. The man was injured and was knocked out. Witnesses pulled the man from the vehicle and attempted to resuscitate him. Once revived, the man choked a woman who was on scene, attempting to assist him. He then walked away from the scene. There was no word on the condition of the passengers in his vehicle. Police reported that alcohol was a factor in the rollover. We are deeply concerned for all those involved and hope they are getting the help they need.
